'With its turquoise roof and patterned mud-brick, the Citadel of Gremi is the perfect example of adapting a church to the Persian style of architecture. Gremi, today a tiny village in the Kakheti region, used to be the capital of Kakheti until it was invaded and destroyed by Persians in the 17th century.' – @againstthecompass -- That's a wrap for this weekend's takeover.

'This is an epic Russian orthodox monastery located in New Aphon, Abkhazia. From a great coastline to dreamy alpine lakes, Georgians themselves claim that Abkhazia may be one of the most beautiful regions in the country, which is very easy to believe, given the fact that this used to be the preferred holiday destination for Stalin and the rest of the Soviet elite. Abkhazia is a region that claimed self-independence from #Georgia, and until very recently has been off limits to tourists.' – @againstthecompass -- Tap our link in bio for info on new direct flights to Georgia from Europe, and what to do when you get there!

'In the north of #Georgia, very deep into the #Caucasus, you find a region called Svaneti, which is characterised by breathtaking mountain scenery, composed of the tallest mountains in the country and filled with traditional villages. Svaneti is the ultimate trekking destination in Georgia, a popular trek being the one that goes from Mestia to Ushguli, a multi-day route from village to village where you can stay every day in a local homestay. The photo is of Ushguli, the last stop of the trek.' – @againstthecompass -- Tap our link in bio for info on new direct flights to Georgia from Europe, and what to do when you get there!

' #Tbilisi, the capital of #Georgia, has many boasts – traditional bazaars, soviet architecture, a well-developed tourism infrastructure, one of the most beautiful old towns in Europe, a growing craft beer scene, a dynamic young generation and the perfect balance between tradition and modernity. This photo showcases the Old City of Tbilisi, in which you can see the beautiful facades and wooden balconies that compose the traditional houses of the city, Jumah mosque, and Orbeliani bathhouse.' – @againstthecompass -- Tap our link in bio for info on new direct flights to Georgia from Europe, and what to do when you get there!
